To improve the quality of life of people with reduced mobility by giving them the ability to experience the excitement of alpine skiing.
Two Bi-Unique Ski or Sit Skis are available at Asessippi. Instructors and volunteers at the resort have received training from the Canadian Association for Disabled Skiing, CADS and are ready to accompany you through your downhill experience.
The skis are able to accommodate both adults and juniors. The ski is designed to be tethered and guided by an instructor who controls the ski and coaches the person riding. With practice the rider has the opportunity to gain control of the ski, learning to turn and speed check.
Other equipment is available from CADS and can be prearranged for use through the resort.
Public inquires should call our main line 204-564-2000.
